Can I backtest strategies based on the Gann Fan using the CTB?
@Market_Monarchs The Gann Fan is a discretionary technical tool and not an indicator. It does not have any specific set of formulas or conditions that can be used for trading. The price levels change with regard to the point from where the Fan is drawn. Hence, if you draw the Fan from point A to B, it will show different price levels and if you draw it from point C to D, it will show different levels.
The CTB backtests the strategies based on the technical indicators plotted on the chart. If no indicator is plotted, then it backtests with the price action of the chart. Since Gann Fan is not a technical indicator but only a drawing tool, the CTB does not consider it while backtesting any strategy.
